Another from the EMP building. This time shot with my Nikon and a long lens to isolate the detail much higher up on the building. I love the blue being reflected from the sky in the metal panels.
This scene was found while scouting the Palouse for new locations. Initially, I was frustrated because I could not find a worthy foreground subject for the amazing sky. In the direction Dan (my tour partner) was shooting, the sky was not near as interesting. He was shooting with a long lens and isolating his subject. [...]
Clouds in the Palouse are always welcome. Add clouds to the pastoral, vibrant rolling farm land and you have a perfect combination for landscape photography. What makes the Palouse even more fun, is to chase cloud shadows as seen is this image. I liken photographing cloud shadows unto shooting fall reflections. I recall being with [...]
Expect to see a number of images from this great building over the next few weeks. Not much time to write today as I have a mountain of mail and do-to items having just returned home from being away for 12 days. Here is another favorite taken with my Fuji X-E1.
Today, I spent the morning shooting the EMP (Experience Music Project) building in Seattle with Dan Sniffin, Bob Towery and Dick Maclauchlan. Most of my blog readers know of my affection for Gehry buildings. I’ve been wanting to get back to this one for a long time, especially after seeing my tour partner Dan’s work from a [...]
The Palouse tour is over. Once again we leave behind a wonderful group of friends, some longtime and some new. I am always amazed how spending a week together doing what we are passionate about can bring a group of strangers together leaving them friends. I love photography, it feeds my soul, however, I am [...]
Many of the the iconic views in the Palouse are from Steptoe Butte. On one evening with our group I made this capture, a study in green. The gentle rolling hills of planted crops make for endless compositions. We are all exhausted today after a wonderful albeit long day yesterday.
I love to shoot wide angle, I love great skies, and I love the Palouse.
Here is another from our pre-tour scouting. The clouds and their shadows are mesmerizing as they roll through the sculpted fields.
Steptoe Butte is always magical every time I’ve been there. Tonight was no different and you might say, we found a pot of gold. At 16mm I was able to capture the entire rainbow! The gang arrives tomorrow as we start our tour at dinner time. Looking forward to spending time with this group!
